If you are an aggressive, close-up run and gun a nimble SMG demon player, and a big die-hard fan of the MP5 and are looking to eliminate your opponents quickly and efficiently with the top loadouts with this super fast weapon, then I have one of the best and tested out MP 5 loadouts designed and ready for you in this guide, to take in the battlefields of COD Modern Warfare II [2022], so let’s dive right in.

SMGs players are being challenged intensely in MW2, but the MP5 (also officially known as the Lachmann Sub) is one of the most uniquely balanced, agile, and rapid armor penetration SMGs built and currently trending in the game right now as it is known for its instant annihilation of its targets, with quick accuracy and precision.

It is also built in such a way that even beginners can get used to this weapon easily. However, keep in mind that this machine is best for closed-up to medium-distanced fight trades. If you are used to that range, then this SMG is perfect for you.

Unlocking the MP5 If Locked

If the MP5 is locked for you, then it may be due to your other guns being locked and not levelled up down the weapon tree. Here is a quick way you can unlock the MP5:

  • In the main menu on the top right, click on the Weapons section and then click on Multiplayer Loadouts on the bottom left
  • Go to one of your Custom Loadouts and pick a gun.
  • Head over to the SMGs and you will see Lachmann Sub locked.
  • Press B on your keyboard (For PS and Xbox, press the button on the left to the Play Station and Xbox button) to open up the Weapons Tree.
  • You will notice that you will have to unlock the Lachmann-762 first at account level 18. then level up this weapon to Level 13, unlocking the Lachmann-556. Lastly, climb this weapon to level 12 which will finally unlock the MP5/Lachmann Sub for you.

Secondary Weapon, Perks, Tactical, Lethal and Field Upgrade

Secondary Weapon: X13 Auto

COD Modern Warfare II X13 Auto
The X13 Auto is a super convenient secondary handgun to stay quick and nimble especially with the MP5

Tactical: Stun Grenade

Lethal: Semtex

Custom Perk Package:

  • Basic Perk 1: Tracker
  • Basic Perk 2: Double Time
  • Bonus Perk: Fast Hands
  • Ultimate Perk: High Alert

Field Upgrade: Dead Silence

These loadouts along with the secondary weapon, tactical, lethal, perks and field upgrade listed are gonna allow you to run insanely at high speeds since you are prioritizing your movement and ADS speed. In addition, you can be the first able to shoot down your opponents, and essentially be the fastest player on the map.

At the end of the day, you’re gonna be reloading, sprinting, hunting and rushing down your opponents like never before, with better recoil, stability and controlled hip firing.

Subsequently, you may also swap out High Alert with some other Ultimate Perk, as it is not that necessary. For instance, take Ghost, if you want to avoid being detected by the enemy radars. This can be a great synergy with the Field Upgrade of Dead Silence since the noise of your footsteps will be completely zero.

Personally, if you enjoy flicking around enemies and decimating them instantly, then for sure, go with High Alert.

Final Thoughts

To summarize it all, these are so far the best mp5 loadouts I have come up with, and they have resulted in being super successful in securing quick and easy victories.

If you feel like these MP5 loadouts are not working out for you, you can try out different ones until you feel comfortable and eased enough with your preferences. You can even adjust the other setups mentioned along as you wish accordingly.
